Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner extended his franchise record point-streak to 22 games on Saturday night against the Calgary Flames. 

After former Maple Leaf and Stanley Cup champion with the Colorado Avalanche Nazem Kadri scored the go-ahead goal in the first period for the Flames, Marner picked up a secondary assist on a goal from William Nylander to tie the game 2-2.

Marner later scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lift the Leafs over the Flames 5-4. 

The 25-year-old star winger broke the Leafs’ post-streak record during last week's 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning with a two-goal performance that helped him surpass Darryl Sittler (1977-78) and Eddie Olczyk (1989-90), who both put together 18-game streaks while playing in Toronto. 

Marner has the third longest point-streak among active players behind Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane (26 games) and Pittsburgh Penguins centre Sidney Crosby (25 games). 

The fourth overall draft choice in the 2015 NHL Draft has 12 goals and 35 points in 29 games this season.
